The National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra - in a matchbox
NATIONAL FILM AND SOUND ARCHIVE
A regular matchbox is given a makeover to become a cute tiny version of the great buildings of Canberra Australia. They can even fit in your hand. Photographs cover the box and plastic people decorate the inside.
The National Film and Sound Archive was completed in 1930 in Art Deco style. The building was originally known as the Australian Institute of Anatomy and constructed to house the anatomy collection of Sir Colin Mackenzie. With the establishment of the National Film and Sound Archive in 1984 the building now houses1.9 million audio-visual works.
The exhibit in the interior of the matchbox is for the short animated film 'Tegan the Vegan', directed by Marisa Martin. www.teganthevegan.net

The exact people and furniture may differ from pictured as each is individually hand-made. If you have something specific in mind for the people/furniture, please let us know when you order.
A lot of love has gone into the making of our dollhouses and each is a totally unique upcycled piece. They are significantly handmade and as such have their own personality and imperfections. Young people should be supervised and care should be taken when handling them.
